It is Summer

The dry sky.
Cloudless.
Not a single, frozen dew drop.
Not another color beyond the blue,
besides the hot, white Sun.

I am told it is, in fact, yellow.
But I won’t stand staring at it in argument.
Going blind.

Let’s just call it bright.

Though it is humid and I am hot,
the sky is dry
and the Sun
is bare and unblocked
from its 8 light-minute journey,
beating upon the breadth of the Earth’s crust,
nourishing vegetation,
tanning hides,
sending mammals, like myself,
in search for shade
and fresh water.

It is Summer.

And I am hot
with the weather.
